here's another one worth noting, from the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. The calendar is printed on recycled paper with soy ink. The RPVC of Madison, Wisconsin - which produces the calendar - says, "nearly every day lists important festivals, birthdays, and holidays from around the world."
Some of the sites selling the calendar online are Heart of Texas Peace Corps Association, Tennessee Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, and West Cascade Peace Corps Association.

Recycling/Reuse Idea of the Month
Have some single gloves - because the partner was lost, chewed up by the dog, or whatever? You can send those single glves along to Glove Love in the U.K. where each one will be washed, paired with another glove of the same size (but not the same color), and sold for 5 pounds. [via Springwise]

My Little Twitter Tidbits
I'm using Twitter mostly for those tidbits of organizing-related stuff I find - little things that will never make their way into a newsletter or a blog post. I also use Twitter to announce new blog posts. Follow me, @JeriDansky, if you'd like.
For those who don't use Twitter, here are some of the things I've written lately, slightly edited for a non-Twitter environment:
- Admiring Neil Gaiman's bookshelves. And this is just the downstairs library; there's an upstairs one, too. http://bit.ly/Tzr2C
- "You can never get enough of what you don't really need." - April Benson, regarding compulsive shopping
- Eying a very unusual piece of storage furniture: http://bit.ly/umfi3
- Reading Jon Carroll, about cleaning out a parent's apartment; not an easy thing. http://bit.ly/t5avI
- Reading Martha Stewart "I don’t have any inanimate possessions that I couldn’t live without." http://bit.ly/1h07lZ
- Just finished watching ADD & Loving It. Terrific show - educational & funny, well worth the time & commercials. http://bit.ly/n1Z6Q
- Stumbled upon this dog-shaped "robotic recycling trash can." http://bit.ly/27oXFa and http://bit.ly/1arIaU
